  • Description:Mandarin Chinese is the most widely spoken language in the world. In a rapidly globalizing environment,speaking it is an increasingly important skill for young people in the UK.

It features:

    practical ideas for teachers of Chinese to implement in their own classrooms evaluation of differing strategies and approaches unique to teaching Chinese examples of using action research to help teachers reflect on their own practice while informing practice acrossthe discipline.
